Sky-Hi staff report

The National Weather Service in Boulder has issued a winter storm warning for areas of Colorado, including Grand County, forecasting another sizable snow storm beginning late Friday afternoon.

An active weather patter remains in place over Colorado, according to the NWS, which will bring more snow to the mountains Friday afternoon and evening, with additional snow amounts of six to 12 inches possible.

The heaviest amounts are expected over Rabbit Ears Pass and in Summit County.

A few embedded thunderstorms will also be possible, leading to locally higher snow accumulations.

Winter storm warnings for the mountains and a High Wind Watch for the Front Range Foothills are in effect for this afternoon and tonight to highlight the dangerous nature of this weather pattern.

Another weather system, according to the NWS, may affect the same area Monday night through Wednesday, and bring another round of precipitation to the region.
